Wagga Wagga Medical Centre is pleased to welcome Doctor Amir Mohtashami and Doctor Mariam Mahmood to the practice joining Professor Lexin Wang and Doctor Seema Siddiqui.
“Our practice is fully accredited with AGPAL and is a registered GP training facility, and we strive to deliver exceptional health care in a caring and friendly manner,” practice manager Jan Campbell said.
“With our two new doctors early this month, we now have the ability to welcome new patients.”
Dr Amir Mohtashami
Dr Amir Mohtashami started at the practice early this month and he holds a special interest in chronic health issues.
He says that the friendly and supportive staff have helped him settle into his new role quickly – and he finds helping people is extremely rewarding.
When he’s not hard at work looking after his patients Dr Mohtashami keeps himself busy at the gym, doing crossfit, playing guitar and traveling.
Dr Mariam Mahmood
“Although I have been at Wagga Wagga Medical Centre for a short time I am really enjoying my work in Wagga and am planning to stay here for a long time,” Dr Mahmood said.
“Since my very first day I have been made to feel very welcome.”
Dr Mahmood’s special interests are in women’s health and skin disease and she speaks several languages including Urdo, Hindi, Dari and Pashto.
When she’s not at work Dr Mahmood loves to go shopping and spend time with her family.
